Charitable Remainder Trusts

A charitable remainder trust allows you to support York’s vibrant and promising future and receive an immediate tax receipt, among other unique benefits.

Trusts can be established to provide income to family members during their lifetimes. The principal can be designated to pass to the university upon dissolution of the trust. Depending on how the trust is structured, you or your estate may receive a charitable donation receipt.

Check with your legal or financial advisor about whether this giving option is right for you. York University's development team would be delighted to provide more information. Please contact us at 416-650-8210 or by email at
